Pitch Yourself: Taking the PR bull by the horns | An Interview with Christina Daves

Who doesn’t love free PR?  For some of us, however, the concept is elusive.  Christina Daves is serial entrepreneur who has founded and run five successful companies over the last 20 years.  With no resources remaining when she launched her last venture, Castmedic Designs, Christina taught herself everything she could about generating her own publicity.

Since launching Castmedic Designs in 2012, she’s appeared in over 250 media outlets including national and local television and publications.  As a result of her success she launched PRforAnyone.com.  Together with her clients, Christina has generated over seven figures in sales related to free publicity.  You can find her book PR for Anyone on Amazon.

Christina and I discuss:

  • DIY PR
  • Making yourself newsworthy locally
  • PR tips for realtors
  • How to generate new customers through social media
